D.N.Angel

D.N.Angel

For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!

Both series have are about people with secrets that they cannot let anyone know about. These secrets make it difficult to have a relationship with the other character. In both series, there are both triangles and fighting involved. Both are great series and hopefully you will like both of them too!

If you like drama, shojo, romany girly stuff, D.N.Angel and Fruits Basket are both most definatly for you. They both revolve around cute little crushes VS true love, and the dramatic "who likes who" scenario. They both contain very bishonen characters, seeing as how the target audiance is probably teenage girls (my guess). However, behind all this nice, happy, cutsey stuff highly prevalent in both anime; they both have sort of a darker behind-the-scenes story, that doesn't fully come to frutation until the ending episodes. If you liked one of these anime, I highly suggest you give the other a try.

Princess Princess

Princess Princess

It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...

Both Fruits Basket and Princess Princess revolve around pretty boys in unusual situations, including interesting back story (who doesn't love back story!?). Additionally, both are light hearted, fun, and a little bit off the beaten path in terms of storyline. Fruits Basket has transformations brought on by hugs, and Princess Princess has cross-dressing boys to "brighten up" the atmosphere of their all boys school. They're both a lot of fun in general, with great OP and ED songs. :)

Saiunkoku Monogatari

Saiunkoku Monogatari

In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!

Both of these series revolve around a spirited girl who always does her best to help those around her from the bottom of her heart, without askng for anything in return. Both girls also seem to be the female equivalents of "chick-magnets", since nearly every bishounin of the series has a 'romantic scene' with her somewhere in the story.

Both series are also perfect blends of not only romance, but comedy and drama also, so they have plenty going on to keep you endlessly entertained!

the main female characters are very similar- both happy and cheerful no matter what happens.

they both start off being very poor and end up living somewhere else.

all the man male characters end up liking the main female character.

While Sana, the lead female, is a tad over the top at times, Akito (the lead male) is much like Kyo in the sense that he puts up an angry front to hide his vulnerable side. The way he slowly warms up to Sana is very similar to the Fruits Basket formula.

AnnaSartin AnnaSartin says...

Sana Kurata and Tohru Honda are both positive-minded characters who work hard and do all that they can to help the people around them. You can't help but want them to succeed and be happy.

Both Inuyasha and Fruits Basket have a girl as a main character and are liked by more than one guy. The main characters also end up with the guy that does not usually show that they like her very outwardly.

dmdg8 dmdg8 says...

Both anime are about a girl that finds out about a boy's secret, and that needs to keep it with her life. Both girls will love the boys with their lifes. And the boys all have issues in love showing affairs.

At least that's how I see it..the animes are two worlds apart, but with slight touching resemblemses.
